Happy New Year! #ProverbialMonday:

Every week we'll start off with our "highs and lows" and get into some important societal survival skills and general goings on of the TwinCities and neighboring communities with news about the rest of the world here and there. Participation is simple. Just give us your highs and lows either in the comments of the article or on twitter by trending #ProverbialMonday or tweeting to me @ProverbTribune.

High: Tristen Royce Howard Comer (My Son)

Low: So much to do, so little time.


A major barrier that often hinders us from acknowledging or even recognizing our success is an inability to articulate what we want on a core level. While we have some shallow vision of what seems like a nice lifestyle we forget to ask ourselves why and deeply, honestly audit the foundation of that vision. Once you have some idea what you want to achieve ask yourself why at least 3 times before taking pursuit to ensure that you are working toward acquiring whats at the root of your goal rather than acquiring the surface level things you presume you should have as someone who is successful. To get a clear vision of what success looks like for you then investigate why it looks that way will bring you to greater understanding of what you really want and will help guide your ambition. Ambition without guidance is a thirsty fish.
